We are moving to Magento and want to update our look.
I am completely happy with the layout so that won't be changing. However, it needs to be compatible with Magento's "Log In, Checkout, My Cart, My Account" up in the top right. I've included a blank Magento screen so you can see what I mean. It is also essential that our phone number is up in the top right too.
I think our current design is a bit busy. Especially the background. I want make it look modern, cleaner, fresher, brighter, a little bit simpler and a bit warmer. I want it to say "florist" but also be a bit "Web 2.0".
Having said that, it's all about the flowers. The look must not overpower the products.
You'll be producing the generic Magento theme design which has a header with menu across the top, footer, background, and the content down the left. All of the existing product photography is on white.
We are a genuine bricks and mortar shop which is important in our business. That is why there is a picture of our van in front of Parliament House (Canberra icon). This needs to stay in the design but I feel it is a bit cold. I want the sky replaced with clear blue and just generally make it look better. A PSD of this file is available.
Logo file has also been uploaded.
No flash and don't let the design get in the way of the user. That means functionality comes first.
Thanks for looking.
